The Division 2 Lets You Play Solo From Beginning to End
Ubisoft has always placed a heavy emphasis on co-op when promoting The Division, but what about those anti-social players out there? The first game could be played single-player if you wanted, but what about The Division 2? Ubisoft is adding even more co-op features to the sequel, so has the single-player option been sidelined? Thankfully, not!
In a recent interview with AusGamers, The Division 2 director Mathias Karlson emphasized the importance of letting players tackle the game however they want.
“It’s really a core principal for us that there is no right or wrong way to play The Division. You can play through the entire story campaign into end-game and [then the] end-game [content], alone. You can also do the same content [in] two, three, or four player co-op. Or eight player co-op, two full groups in the raid if you opt into the challenge that we’re adding. So it’s very important for us that you get to pick. Personally I’m a co-op player, […] but many people at the office are, like, ‘That’s cool, I like it in certain activities. But I want to have the bulk of the experience alone when I’m out exploring’. So there’s no right or wrong.”
Of course Dark Zone PVP play will also continue to be a major feature…
“We are super-committed to having strong PVP in relation to The Division 2. Just like in the first game, we are going to get you a revamped dark-zone experience, I can say that much. Really building on what we talked about before: the learnings of running it live and that very unique atmosphere, and essence of what the dark-zone is. But transferred into gameplay.”
